The Google G Suite Legacy free edition is being discontinued this May. I signed up for G-Suite way back pre-2010 and have been using it to maintain email for my family. This helps my elderly parents who are easily confused with email accounts.
Joplin continues to be my favorite note-taking and markdown application. It has several killer features that make it great.
There are some great note taking applications available these days. I want to call out two that I've used within the last year.
I look for key features in a note taking application. Without these, it isn't worth using.
